Tai chi patients were also more likely to sustain improvement three months later." Personally I found Tai Chi has helped me regain energy surprisingly well. My afterthought theory: there is something special about the slow continuous muscle and myofascial(sp?) stretching that helps pain and mitochondrial function. The 100% concentration needed to learn moves, to stay in synch with those around you, is naturally meditative and like learning a new language for brain cell development. [Since I now sound like a salesman let me add: I have zero vested interest in promoting Tai Chi]. I don't have ANY sensitive Fibro points but like a number of PWME I do have all kinds of other weird neurological pains.
